How about parallel computing with finance

for BPN model, my transformed script(not parallel) which is written to gauss matrix language

(the popular software for the Economist) will hint you to lead the programming to the parallel code.

the site is located in the 

http://www.american.edu/academic.depts/cas/econ/gaussres/optimize/nnet_ho.src

I think it needs one more step to make a matrix form to parallel form ..

Have a nice day
